One And Only Nitrifying Bacteria H2O-PURE 4 oz
Great for new tanks, and new filters
I bought this in attempts to give my tanks a little boost, as well as start new filter i got.
i had an established community tank and added a filter to it. poured a cap of this directly into the filter (with bio-screen but not cartridge) for the bacteria to get on the screen,
Then i used some in my newly set up 29 Gallon Snail tank's filter, then put some in each of the tanks
I left the filters off overnight so the bacteria could colonize
noticeable difference in tank clarity before even turning the filters on.
I would strongly recommend this for starting a new tank, breaking a in a new external filter, or giving your tank a boost.

Does what it says
I used this product and my tank completly cycled in about a week and has been running perfectly ever since. All levels are right where they are supposed to be. Exellent product!

This Stuff Actually Works!
I've tried a lot of different products that claim to cycle a tank, but most of them really don't do a very good job of it. Dr. Tim's One And Only Nitrifying Bacteria H2O-PURE is the only one that does what it's supposed to do, at least in my experience.
I usually cycle a tank with ammonia, but sometimes I need to add fish to a new tank right away, and just can't wait for a normal cycle, which takes several weeks. I've used this product twice now, to instantly cycle two different tanks. I added fish immediately, and have never had any ammonia or nitrite readings on either tank. This stuff works. In a pinch, it's the only way to go. I highly recommend this product.

I just started up a new reef tank and decided o give this product a try. I have always been skeptical of "magic nitrifying bacteria", but this stuff was great. In my experience, I feel like this product helped the cycling process move more smoothly. I had 0 measurements across the board more rapidly than ever before. Although, I still gave it an extra week before adding any critters to ensure it wasn't a false sense of security. I feel like this is a good product but constant supervision of the cycling process is still necessary to ensure a healthy tank long-term.
